Clinicians often struggle with parental nonadherence to treatment recommendations made during parent training activities.
Adherence may be improved by nurturing a collaborative relationship with family members. Collaboration requires specific relational responses of clinicians such as actively and empathically listening, compromising, and compassionately understanding each family’s unique circumstance.
This talk will review strategies to foster collaboration with parents, with the goal of improving adherence to treatment recommendations.
